1/2 cup (8 tablespoons or 1 stick) butter or margarine
2/3 cup Hershey's Brand Cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted; measure and the sift
1/3 cup milk or heavy cream; can use half and half 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Melt butter in small saucepan over low (medium low) heat.

2. Add cocoa (will be a paste); cook, stirring constantly, just until mixture begins to boil.

3. Pour mixture into medium bowl; cool completely.

3. Add powdered sugar alternately with milk (add milk first) to cocoa mixture, beating to spreading consistency. Stir in vanilla.

Frosting can be stored at room temperature, well covered, for a few days. It can be frozen for a month or more.
